Marks of a True Christian: Love

September 15, 2007

Romans 12:9

In the letter to the Romans, Paul identifies marks or traits that identify an individual as a true Christian. The first of these marks is love. This is not just any sort of love; the Greek word Paul uses is agape, which indicates a love like God’s love. Paul completes the thought with counsel on what a God-like love would and would not do.
